So so British film about noxious flies spreading disease. OKish. I guess you can get some old factory and hospital scenes.

Subject: Such lovely music...
...and disgusting subject matter.

British color film about flies and sanitation.

Color shots of fly-laden garbage and food and close ups of maggots and flies.
